GUNS


I am at the mall shopping with my best friend laughing and dreaming


of how I will look in my new outfit.


I don’t understand.


Why is everyone screaming? Chaos.


I am not laughing any more.


I am scared.


Someone had a gun?  At the mall?


 


I turn on the TV and hear about a shooting on a college campus.


I don’t understand.


I want to go to college and plan for my future.


I am scared.


Someone had a gun?  At a college?


 


I hear there was a shooting at an elementary school.


I don’t understand.


Why would someone hurt little children?


Maybe I won’t become a teacher now.


I am scared.


Someone had a gun?  At an elementary school?


 


Guns in our safe places?


I don’t understand.


How can we keep guns safe?


I am scared.
